Other forms of martial arts such as Karate or Tae Kwon Do have been more popular in the United States even though Krav Maga has been around for approximately forty years. Krav Maga is only now beginning to reach mass popularity in the United States. Once reserved for special military, police and protection units, it is now accessible to just about any individual of any ability. This is because Krav Maga was designed for the general public as well. Krav Maga has also been more in the public eye due to media exposure, from movies like Enough, Terminator 3, and Tomb Raider 2, with celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Shannon Elizabeth, and Angelina Jolie training. Now more than ever, people want to feel safe and Krav Maga is one of the most efficient ways to protect yourself and your loved ones.
